Auditors' reports on financial statements & other matters.
Auditors form, and report, an audit opinion about financial statements that they audit.
The auditors do not guarantee - nor certify - the amounts in the financial statements.
The incorrect belief that they do, is sometimes known as the audit "expectation gap".
Similarly incorrect - and excessive - expectations can also arise about other assurance work undertaken by external audit specialists.
